Today’s Responsorial Psalm 34:2-3, 6-7, 17-18, 19 and 23…

R. (7a) The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

I will bless the LORD at all times;
 his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
 the lowly will hear me and be glad.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

Look to him that you may be radiant with joy,
 and your faces may not blush with shame.
When the poor one called out, the LORD heard,
 and from all his distress he saved him.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

The LORD confronts the evildoers,
 to destroy remembrance of them from the earth.
When the just cry out, the LORD hears them,
 and from all their distress he rescues them.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
 and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
The LORD redeems the lives of his servants;
 no one incurs guilt who takes refuge in him.
R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor.

Reading I Zephaniah 3:1-2, 9-13

Thus says the LORD:
Woe to the city, rebellious and polluted,
 to the tyrannical city!
She hears no voice,
 accepts no correction;
In the LORD she has not trusted,
 to her God she has not drawn near.
For then I will change and purify
 the lips of the peoples,
That they all may call upon the name of the LORD,
 to serve him with one accord;
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
 and as far as the recesses of the North,
 they shall bring me offerings.
On that day
You need not be ashamed 
 of all your deeds,
 your rebellious actions against me;
For then will I remove from your midst
 the proud braggarts,
And you shall no longer exalt yourself
 on my holy mountain.
But I will leave as a remnant in your midst
 a people humble and lowly,
Who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD:
 the remnant of Israel.
They shall do no wrong
 and speak no lies;
Nor shall there be found in their mouths
 a deceitful tongue;
They shall pasture and couch their flocks
 with none to disturb them.

Gospel Matthew 21:28-32

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people:
“What is your opinion? 
A man had two sons. 
He came to the first and said,
‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’ 
The son said in reply, ‘I will not,’
but afterwards he changed his mind and went. 
The man came to the other son and gave the same order. 
He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go. 
Which of the two did his father’s will?” 
They answered, “The first.” 
Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you,
tax collectors and prostitutes
are entering the Kingdom of God before you. 
When John came to you in the way of righteousness,
you did not believe him;
but tax collectors and prostitutes did. 
Yet even when you saw that,
you did not later change your minds and believe him.”

Formed: Thy Will Be Done

In the Book of Zephaniah, God tells his people of their need for purification. Israel is urged to speak the truth, to die to themselves, and to serve the Lord. Even though this is not an easy path, it leads to joyful friendship with God. As we embark on this same journey of faith, let us ask for the intercession of St. John of the Cross, a great spiritual master!

Not my will, but Yours Lord God.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Amen.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Amen.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, make me holy. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, fill me with love. Water from Christ’s side, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. Good Jesus, hear me. Within your wounds, hide me. Never let me be parted from you. From the evil enemy, protect me. At the hour of my death, call me. And tell me to come to you. That with your saints I may praise you. Through all eternity.
Amen.
